From Round to Square (and back)

For The Emperor's Teacher, scroll down (↓) to "Topics." It's the management book that will rock the world (and break the vase, as you will see). Click or paste the following link for a recent profile of the project:

A new post appears every day at 12:05* (CDT). There's more, though. Take a look at the right-hand side of the page for over four years of material (2,000 posts and growing) from Seinfeld and country music to every single day of the Chinese lunar calendar...translated. Look here ↓ and explore a little. It will take you all the way down the page...from round to square (and back again).
*Occasionally I will leave a long post up for thirty-six hours, and post a shorter entry at noon the next day.

                         What is the use of running when you are on the wrong road?

No worries, though—my name is Lederhosen Pug, and I know the way.

And the way isn't always along a road. We have a pretty major waterway or two down here in Bavaria. You might have heard of the Danube? And how about the Main? No, I don't mean the "most important." I mean the Main River.

The Main flows through Upper Franconia (more on that region in a few days), and the Danube through Bavaria's center. We are proud of these rivers, and their storied (and "songed") qualities through the ages.

The Danube, in particular, covers a whole lot of territory (ten different countries at this count), and has figured in historical borders and skirmishes since at least the Roman Empire. It begins in the depths of the Black Forest, and empties into the Black Sea. Black to black, the river is big

Bavaria big (and even bigger than that).
